I began CrossFit in August 2015 to prepare for 2 close friends wedding parties in the winter. At that time I weighed the heaviest ever at 173lbs. I was ALWAYS active and love to exercise, but learned over time its not only about the exercise but what you are putting into your body. Once I started to lose the weight through CrossFit and healthy eating, I wanted to see how changing around my diet and eating clean would effect my body. I lost 20 lbs and looked great but still felt my body could look better. I had come back from a few vacations and I decided this was the time to start to become strict and needed a new action plan. I reached out to Brittany, a fellow CrossFit member and nutritionist and it was life changing. She asked me if I was committed and ready and that if I was to do this I need to really commit to it. She also reinforced the fact it was not a diet but had to start to become a way of life. We took my measurements, weight and she constructed a plan. We decided together that I will track my calories/macros and to eat as clean as possible following the Paleo diet platform of meat, fish, eggs, nuts, and most fruits. From May 2015-November 2017, 6 months my body changed immensely. I lost 15 more pounds, went down 4 inches in my waist, and 1 inch around my thighs. As of today, I have been able to maintain the weight loss and keep my body healthy and in shape. Without Brittany and he plan we constructed together for my body, this all could not have been possible. On a personal level, we have developed a friendship through CrossFit and the relationship we have built through client and student. It’s a great feeling!
